DeLuca calls on House State Government Committee chair to move on election, government reform bills

In a letter to House State Government Committee Chairman Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler), Rep. Tony DeLuca (D-Penn Hills) is asking the Chairman to move on a package of bills to create a “more open and equitable election process” in Pennsylvania government. 

In the letter, DeLuca called on Metcalfe to consider six election and government reform-related bills that have been referred to the committee, such as HB 945 which would give voters the opportunity to register at their polling place on Election Day by providing ID that includes a photo and permanent address.
